Italian millet is a commercially important grain crop. Nineteen polymorphic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers, developed through construction of an SSR-enriched library from genomic DNA of Italian millet (Setaria italica L., P. Beauv.), were used for assessment of molecular genetic diversity against 40 accessions of S. italica. In total, 85 alleles were(More)
The Rubus genus consists of more than 600 species that are distributed globally. Only a few Rubus species, including raspberries and blueberries, have been domesticated. Genetic diversity within and between Rubus species is an important resource for breeding programs. We developed genomic microsatellite markers using an SSR-enriched R. coreanus library to(More)
Transcriptomes from high-throughput sequencing technology provide a good resource for molecular markers. Here, we report the development of polymorphic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers from transcript sequences via 454 pyrosequencing for Vicia sativa subsp. nigra (narrow-leaved vetch). In contrast to V. sativa subsp. sativa, the most commonly grown(More)
The temperate and herbaceous genus Vicia L. is a member of the legume tribe Fabeae of the subfamily Papilionoideae. The genus Vicia comprises 166 annual or perennial species distributed mainly in Europe, Asia, and North America, but also extending to the temperate regions of South America and tropical Africa. The use of simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers(More)
Improving eating quality and nutrition is one of the most important objectives in rice breeding program. Palatability factors and seed protein patterns of 69 Korean rice landraces were compared in this study. Of seven palatability factors, setback viscosity (SBV) had the largest variance, ranging from -144 to 45. Water content (WC) had the lowest variance,(More)
Molecular markers derived from the complete chloroplast genome can provide effective tools for species identification and phylogenetic resolution. Complete chloroplast (cp) genome sequences of Capsicum species have been reported. We herein report the complete chloroplast genome sequence of Capsicum baccatum var. baccatum, a wild Capsicum species. The total(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY We report the complete sequence of the chloroplast genome of Capsicum frutescens (Solanaceae), a species of chili pepper. METHODS AND RESULTS Using an Illumina platform, we sequenced the chloroplast genome of C. frutescens. The total length of the genome is 156,817 bp, and the overall GC content is 37.7%. A pair of 25,792-bp inverted(More)
The vetch (Vicia sativa) is one of the most important annual forage legumes globally due to its multiple uses and high nutritional content. Despite these agronomical benefits, many drawbacks, including cyano-alanine toxin, has reduced the agronomic value of vetch varieties. Here, we used 454 technology to sequence the two V. sativa subspecies (ssp. sativa(More)
Balloon flower (Platycodon grandiflorum A. DC) is widely distributed in South Korea and there are some local landraces that are cultivated as a vegetable crop or medicinal plant. Making use of the gene resources of wild-type and landraces is a way to increase the genetic diversity of the cultivars. However, few tools or information are available on an(More)
